"I'm so tired of America" Rufus Wainwright
sings on this protest song. At the time, George W. Bush was seven years into his presidency and had escalated the war in Afghanistan.
"I had no intention of writing 'Going To A Town,'" Wainwright told Q
magazine, October 2007. "It just came out in 10 minutes. I actually enjoy living in New York, enjoying the spoils of empire. That said, the political situation has become so horrific on so many levels that I don't think anyone can help writing about it."
